Almost everyone is aware of the crisis facing our nation and Syria alike. If you are not aware then you must be living under a rock. The people of the United States along with Congress are split in their decisions whether or not to attack Syria. There is a very fine line that I personally am not sure if we should cross. Attacking Syria would be another instance where the United States interferes with another country's problems. Also, the US does not have the backing of its allies which should be a strong determining factor.
On one hand I can understand and ALMOST support the US if they do decide to attack Syria. It shows a strong stance against the use of chemical weapons. If we do not take a stand against such morbid weaponry use then who is to say that chemical weapons won't eventually be used against America? Since Obama prematurely put out the military threat against Syria, how would it look if we did nothing? Should we not try to protect people and innocent children from such horrid destruction and grim deaths? If the US didn't interfere in WWII what might the outcome have been?
On the other hand why should the US constantly interfere with other nations' problems. We have so many issues affecting our own nation that needs dire attention. Things such as high unemployment rates, extreme numbers of home foreclosures, lack of finding work, the homeless, health insurance, and so on. Why should we spend possibly billions of dollars on attacking Syria when we could be using that money to get our own country back in order. But that sounds pretty selfish doesn't it?
I would love to hear your views on this issue. Post a comment.
